    On the way to work this morning I popped in the ol' F.U.C.K. CD. Usually when I get to this song, I skip it only because when it came out, the radio over played it. After not hearing it for about 2 years, I gave it another listen and man....I love this song again! That's all.

    I second that. When F.U.C.K. was on the charts and "Runaround" was being overplayed (Imagine that! There was actually a time when a Van Halen song was OVERPLAYED on MTV) I was sorta tired of the song too. I used to skip over it quite a lot. But now I love it again!

    actually this song grabbed me before poundcake did. Anyone ever hear the song on the footloose soundtrack? He uses the runaround chorus on that song. He doesnt use the whole chorus just a little bit. 3

    I lost my copy a long time ago and I recently got a new copy, and Runaround is actually one of my favs off that album!

    This song was so over-played on the radio and live that it makes my stomach turn as I dive fiercely at the ghetto blaster and save my poor road-weary ears from certain damage.

    I don't mind the song, but the sound on it doesn't really work for me.

    I think it's a great song too! My favorite part of the song is after the solo when Sammy is talking, "She owns it baby"!

    Killer song!!! Awesome Video in which the red/black/and white striped music man makes a rare appearance.
